NTP daemon counts for 2 minutes on shutdowm

doing a reboot - the NTP counts to stop for 2 minutes.

Did not do this on 15.2 - this was an update 15.2 to 15.3

Any idea why?

I am not seeing that. For me, Leap 15.3 shutdowns are reasonably fast.

On the other hand, I did a clean install from the DVD installer. Maybe it is different with an online upgrade.

my workaround is to “systemctl stop ntpd” before the reboot

Hmm. “ntpd” is not running here, and in fact not on the system at all. Rather, it is using “chronyd”.

Chrony stops in 0.000294 seconds:
